PM Terminals Pipavav in partnership with Maersk Training and Gujarat Maritime University launches “Future Leaders Foundation Program” with immersive VR experience.


Following the signing of MOUs at Vibrant Gujarat Summit in January 2024, APM Terminals Pipavav, Maersk Training, and Gujarat Maritime University joined forces to deliver a 5-day program with focus on maritime-related content by leveraging virtual reality (VR).  Maersk Training introduced its award-winning capabilities – “Best Use of AI/AR/VR in Learning and Upskilling”, secured at last year’s Economic Times Future Skills Awards.

The program involved delivery of core maritime content enhanced by VR immersive learning experience.  This is considered an industry-first immersive learning experience to train participants in maritime fundamentals, technical know-how, standardisation, sustainability, job relations, and personal and team health.  The participants also experienced case studies on supply chain called “Farm to Fridge”, warehousing, and sustainable shipping through the use of VR.

“At APM Terminals Pipavav, we are committed to nurturing the next generation of maritime leaders who will drive India’s growth and sustainability agenda,” said Girish Aggarwal, Managing Director, APM Terminals Pipavav.  “The ‘Future Leaders Foundation Program’ is a testament to our dedication to skill development and innovation.  By leveraging cutting-edge technologies like virtual reality and collaborating with industry pioneers like Maersk Training and Gujarat Maritime University, we aim to provide an unparalleled learning experience.  This program will empower young talents with the knowledge and expertise to navigate the complexities of the maritime industry while fostering a sustainable future.”

With this program, Maersk Training together with Gujarat Maritime University and APM Terminals, is exploring opportunities to create a Centre of Excellence to expand the Future Leaders program in due course.  Maersk Training already has a strong track record of creating Centres of Excellence in specific competencies in many markets around the world.  We plan to expand this network and create new collaboration opportunities for the future.  Stakeholders interested to know more are welcome to reach out to us at contact@maersktraining.com.
